Susan Viccars Welcomes You
Thanks for visiting my site. I am an actor, model, and visual artist. I love what I do, and want others to see that I am uniquely creative. Take a look around to find information about myself, my career, and updates on projects I’m working on.
The World is a Stage and a Gallery
After a successful and fulfilling career as a teacher in the public school system, I realized that I had the opportunity to be a creative learner for the rest of my life. I became involved in acting and modelling 15 years ago. I've had roles in national and regional commercial and print projects, as well as some smaller opportunities in film and television.
Visual art has always been part of who I am, I'm fortunate to have a detached home studio. I try to spend regular time there using acrylic paint and water color to show the real and imagined world. For the past couple of years, a lot of my painting is done plein air. These works are mainly finished in an outdoor painting session. It's always exciting to see what an immediate response to the landscape or built environment reveals. I strive to have my personal style as a visual artist evolve uniquely and authentically.
I've been doing photographic modelling for about 15 years. My images have appeared in Time magazine, Zoomer magazine, Vancouver Tourism website and videos, Rocky Mountaineer, Clearly Contacts, and a variety of websites. Here are some recent images, taken by talented photographers Heidi Back, Laura Sosner and Rob Campbell.
